It depends on how hard rivet and plate are attached together. If you know that, then this is a simple torque/force question which you can solve with some basic equations.View attachment 216260 A plate is riveted with a rivet having small rod like projection over the head and the point as shown in drawing.Considering we fix the plate to a vise,and then giving torque to the Rivet Rod;What will be the Maximum Torque the rivet can withstand without getting loosened and how to calculate the Maximum Torque" it?
It is actually more complicated than this. Knowing the maximum clamping force does little good; what is needed is the detailed distribution of the clamping force over the contact zone. Then the maximum moment capability of that distributed force can be computed. This is all rather theoretical and the actual distribution is virtually unknowable. It probably varies from one rivet installation to the next, because it depends upon the details of the driving event (how hard it is hit, how squarely it is hit, etc).From a non-mechanical guy: It seems the clamping force between rivet and disk will be limited by the plastic deformation limit of either the mating surfaces or the rivet shank. Knowing that, and the contact area between the rivet head(s) and the disc, you can find the maximum clamping force. Then use the coefficient of friction between the two components, the clamping force, and the contact area to find the sliding force.
